    Chad Johnson changing his name?

    http://www.profootballtalk.com/2008/...cinco-legally/

    Looks like CJ is getting silly again. I heard that if "Ocho Cinco" is already taken, Rod Smart is willing to sell CJ his "He Hate Me" persona.

    As if that's not bizarre enough, he's also claiming that he and others he knows are better swimmers than Michael Phelps...

    C'mon, you can't take Chad serious. He is just joking around.

    According to CTR, Chad officially changed his name

    New name, same game?

    I just called the Broward County (Fla.) Court Clerk and Chad Johnson is no longer.

    Officially, legally, yesterday, his name was changed to Chad Ocho Cinco.

    Bengals spokesman Jack Brennan said the team has no announcement or response to the reports that the receiver has legally changed his name.

    In 2006 Johnson was fined for wearing an "Ocho Cinco" nameplate on the back of his jersey for pregame warm-ups. He wore "Johnson" on the back of his jersey for the game.

    Now, presumably, he would be able to wear Ocho Cinco on the back of his jersey and the Bengals could sell them.

    His middle name is 'Javon', which I believe is Spanish for 'soap'. Chad Soap Eight Five. I don't get it. Maybe it's so he can still be called 'CJ'.

    I'm not surprised. That's all I have to say about CJ right now.

    Re: Chad Johnson changing his name?

    Is his last name Ocho Cinco, or just Cinco?

    I would think for a last name, it would have to be Ocho-Cinco, since Ocho and Cinco are 2 separate words..

    Should prove interesting.

    Maybe 'Ass-man', if Kosmo Kramer isn't using it anymore.

    Yeah, but I think that's supposed to add to the 'charm'.

    The Bengals could really make "Ocho Cinco" mad and tell him they're retiring #85 in honor of Isaac Curtis. Here, try this 00 jersey instead; it seems to suit you.

    He can call himself Fred Astaire, as long as he catches the ball and crosses the goal line up to his standards.
